Even in winter, without leaves, Ulmus parvifolia ‘Seiju’ has a fascinating appearance. Buds along the plant’s many short, twiggy shoots look like strands of jewels, as do the green leaves when they emerge. Older stems develop exfoliating bark. Use the small, slow-growing, high-interest plant in rock garden, container or small bed to provide an Asian aesthetic. Prefers full to part sun and moist, well-drained soil.
